Grand Concourse
GRAND CONCOURSE

by Heidi Schreck

Tragic Comedy
FINALIST - 2015 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
NOMINEE - 2015 Lucille Lortel Award
THE KILROYS LIST - 2014

Having dedicated her life to religious service, Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen with unsentimental efficiency, but lately her hearts not quite in it. Her brisk nature masks an unsettling fear that her efforts are meaningless. When Emma  an idealistic but confused college dropout  arrives to volunteer, her reckless mix of generosity and self-involvement pushes Shelley to the breaking point. With keen humor and startling compassion, Heidi Schrecks play navigates the mystery of faith, the limits of forgiveness, and the pursuit of something resembling joy.

This is a warm, funny, and moving story of people at their best and sometimes that is not very good, sometimes its great.

"GRAND CONCOURSE may well break your heart. You may need tissues by the end. " - New York Post

Heidi Schrecks beautiful tragicomedy of life reminds you of why you go to the theater in the first place. - Chicago Sun Times

"Insightful with a moving, even shocking epiphany." - Huffington Post

"[;;Heidi Schreck];; writes fluid, natural dialogue and creates detailed characters that offer generous opportunities for actors...the words have the ring of plain truth." - The New York Times

"While most stories about nuns cant resist being feel-good and sincere, the best thing about Schrecks story is its dry-eyed lack of sweetness and sentiment. Amen to that." - New York Daily News
